of the united states as "your president." i do not agree with hardly anything he did, but george w. bush was my president. ronald reagan was my president. i disagree with him most of the time, but george h. w. bush was my president. i am saddened by the fact that we have reached the point where we do not -- where we have one president who does not represent all of us. we should get beyond the rhetoric and talk about what really matters in this country, which is jobs. >> being amazed at how much congressman fox and i have in common. i have been reading "1984" rather recently. what bothers me about what she said is this notion of speed -- of freedom. i think of freedom of speech, not freedom to not have health care. it is not fair that people not take responsibility for their own lives. why should so many of us be paying these large premiums for people who do not decide to have health care? i also think that the other thing you said is that there are a lot of people out there that want health insurance, millions , and cannot get it because they cannot afford it. and a lot of others who are underi
raised taxes 11 times. president george h.w. bush famously raised taxes to reign in the deficit. this really shouldn't be controversial and outside of today's republican party, it isn't. because if you believe that the deficit and debt aren't major problems that need to be addressed, as democrats do and as republicans claim to, then you can't simply ignore revenues at a time when at 15.4% of g.d.p. they are the lowest in 60 years. poll after poll has shown the american people overwhelmingly want to reduce the deficit with a combination of cuts and revenues. every bipartisan group were able to come together because their plans were balanced. and let's be clear, we don't want to increase revenue for the sake of increasing revenue. of course not. but as a nation? we need to pay for the servicable programs the american people want. we need to reign in the deficit and debt. and we need to do it in a responsible way. democrats understand this and congressional republicans should too. because all of this is coming to a head once again. unlike last year, it can start immediately. millio

not start with president obama or president george w. bush, and it is a single word -- medicaid. 30 years ago, state budgets were 8% medicaid. today, they are 25%. i know from my own experience, as you get down to the end of the budget process, after you find highways and courts run certain things, you get to the iwo pots of money, higher education or medicaid, the two pots of money, higher education or -- two pots of money, higher education or medicaid, and as long as states fund medicating a parental way, higher education will be seriously damaged -- medicaid in a preferential way, higher education will be seriously damaged. maybe you can come back to this, but despite all the things you can do with two-year degrees, where one-year degrees or operating in the summer, it seems, as we on leash the states from federal medicaid requirements, than our great public universities and community colleges will continue to be under-funded and tuition and loans will go up. the increase from 8% to 25% is by far the principal reason. to recommend mr. chairman. >> -- thank you, mr. chairman. >> i would
